Abstract : The abdominal cavity can harbour a varied spectrum of diseases. Abdominal lumps are one of the commonest disorders in this region. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, minimal investigations and optimum treatment of the lumps in the right hypochondrium were studied in detail in present study. The prospective observational study was carried out for 24 months. 60 consecutive patients who satisfied the inclusion criteria were taken up for the study. Calculation and analysis of data was done by using MS Excel. The lumps in the right hypochondrium were most common in the 31-40 years age group in the present study. Majority of the lumps were found to be intraperitoneal (65%), of which 45% were neoplastic in nature. 68.3% as compared to 31.7% of lumps had an organ of origin which was not anatomically situated in the right hypochondrium viz. from right kidney and right adrenal. Hepatic lumps were found to be the commonest (35%), of which 14.3% were malignant tumors. Gall bladder carcinoma was more common in 40-60 years with female preponderance. Only 26.7% patients presented with the complaint of lump in abdomen. The commonest complaint was pain in the abdomen followed by vomiting. In 88.3% cases surgery was undertaken for curative or palliative purposes. Of all the lumps in the right hypochondrium, intraperitoneal lumps were more common with abdominal pain as commonest presenting symptom. The commonest lumps were found to be hepatic lumps. Incidence of Neoplastic masses was more than infections and infestations..

Abstract : Study is conducted to compare Harmonic scalpel assisted (ultrasonic) versus Milligan-Morgan (conventional) technique in the management of hemorrhoids, with respect to operative time/complications, post-operative pain, hospital stay and time to resume activity in patients operated in our institute. Prospective comparative study conducted in our institute from September 2019- October 2021 following approval from Ethical committee of hospital. Before surgery, all patients were kept nil by mouth overnight and given a prophylactic antibiotic dose, 30 minutes before induction. All of the procedures were conducted by the same surgical team, under spinal anesthesia, and intra-operative and post-operative data were documented. Mean age of 50 study sample was 49.50 years, with highest 63 years and lowest 38 years. There were 32 (64%) males & 18 (36%) females. 18 (36%) had grade III hemorrhoids, 28% with grade IV hemorrhoids, 9 (18%) with grade II hemorrhoids, 8 (16%) with interno-external hemorrhoids & 1 (2%) fibrosed hemorrhoids. Intraoperative bleeding was more in conventional group. Post operative local edema, infection, fecal incontinence, anal stenosis and recurrence are common complications with conventional hemorrhoidectomy. Mean surgery duration, intra-operative bleeding, post-operative pain score, mean hospital stay, duration to resume normal activity for harmonic scalpel assisted hemorrhoidectomy was significantly lower than Milligan-Morgan hemorrhoidectomy (p=0.000). Our study inferred that harmonic scalpel assisted hemorrhoidectomy is associated with less intra-operative time, blood loss, local edema, post-operative pain, hospital stay, and early return to normal activity/ work as compared with Milligan-Morgan hemorrhoidectomy..

Abstract : A prospective case-control Study was conducted from September 2019 to August 2021 in the Department of General Surgery, Dr. D.Y. Patil Medical College, Hospital and Research Centre, Dr. D.Y. Patil Vidyapeeth, Pimpri, Pune. 81 patients were diagnosed as moderate to severe Acute Pancreatitis by CT Severity Index. They were randomly assigned to two groups. Standard institutional protocol was followed for treatment in Group-B, while Group-A was administered subcutaneous injection 100 mcg Octreotide eight hourly for five days. The Octreotide group did not experience any significant pain relief, decrease in TLC/serum amylase/ serum lipase/ CRP or duration of hospital stay. There was no significant difference among both the groups regarding occurrence of complications at 6 and 12 months. Octreotide did not prove to be an effective drug for management of acute pancreatitis and prevention of its complications..

Abstract : To determine the frequency of depression in patients with Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD). Observational cross-sectional study. Nephrology outpatient clinics of the Faisal Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan from July to December 2021. A total of 251 CKD patients were included in this study. After taking written informed consent they were requested to fill the Siddiqui –Shah Depression Scale (SSDS), Urdu version questionnaire. Scoring of depression scale was done and participants were labeled as positive for depression according to score. Participants were also categorize as having mild, moderate and severe depression according to Siddiqui –Shah Depression Scale (SSDS). Out of 251 patients there were 127(50.6%) males and 124 (49.4%) females. Frequency of depression in CKD patients was observed in 163(64.9%). In those subjects who have depression 83(33.1%) have mild depression, 56 (22.3%) have moderate depression and 24(9.6%) have severe depression. Depression is frequently found in CKD patients. Most of them have mild depression. Early diagnosis and monitoring the presence of depressive symptoms should be part of the routine care in patients with CKD..

Abstract : Salivary diagnostics boasts increased accessibility, accuracy and affordability as a diagnostic modality and is safer for patients and healthcare workers compared to pre-existing modalities. Progressive increase in LDH levels are seen to be positively related to the degree of cellular atypia and can be used as a screening tool in assessing the malignant potential of premalignant lesions. Whereas its positive relationship with histological differentiation can be used as a prognostic indicator in malignancies. To study the correlation between salivary Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in Head and neck cancer (HNC) with the histopathological grade. Patients who were biopsy proven to have head and neck cancers, were planned for appropriate surgery based on staging and histopathology. Their preoperative salivary LDH and post-operative salivary LDH was measured to look for any change in values to prove a correlation between malignancy and salivary LDH levels and was compared with the histological grade. The grade of differentiation directly corresponds to the salivary LDH levels, with a statistically significant p value=0.0008. Stage wise preoperative salivary LDH shows statistically significance with p-value= 0.013 along with a statistically significant fall post- operatively (p-value=0.018) and at 6 months (p-value=0.046). Poorer the differentiation higher the Salivary LDH levels. There is a possible prognostic role of salivary LDH in head and neck malignancies which needs to be considered as an alternative or adjunct to traditional biopsy..
